    Well congrats man! :)

    Too bad about the wheels though, at lease got the oppertunity to do it previously, and I'm sure this probably won't be your last trip.

    Maybe you can give her a little airman's charm. :p

    we're definately going to the cape for at least a week. We're also thinking of San Francisco or Key West. Two totally different options, but relaxation is key.

    We are taking at least two weeks off from work :)

    is it really 32,000 miles to get to japan? that doesn't seem right at all.

    i mean, its 3k coast to coast on the US....

    then maybe 9k from cali to japan, no?

    lets just say...it's a 24 hour trip from door to door...loose a day to get there, and gain a day coming back....

    the ride sucks...but getting there is worth it...

    *in napolean's voice* dang, lucky.

    and 400 bucks? damn that is pretty friggin nice. i remember looking for around summer and it was at least 1000 for round trip. anyway, hope you eat lots of sushi, see lots of JDMness and take pictures. seeing them will make me sad because i cant afford to go for at least another 5 years, but it will hurt so good.

    Maybe next year I'll go. Buy a cargo container, and stuff it with as much JDM goodness as possible.

    Then actually get it in the US 4 months later.
